I have read every thread concerning the "Worlds Best Clarinetist" and it
seems to me that everyone is putting the emphasis on how high one can play,
to be the criteria determining the best.

I would submit that the determining factor should depend upon one's
proficiency in both jazz and classical performance, and there was no one
(IMHO) more qualified than the late great Benny Goodman.

O.K., DJML'ers, what do you think?
